Re: Beck reinventing himself

Don't worry, the fact that Beck is a Mormon will be what ultimately defeats any effort on his part to organize and guide Christian conservatives.

TRENDING: At rally, Beck positions himself as new leader for Christian conservatives – CNN Belief Blog - CNN.com Blogs


Sorry folks whenever I hear someone like this suddenly having a religious epiphany I'm very skeptical. Gold anyone at 300 percent mark up? If you can't see this guy for what a phoney he is I feel sorry for you.

Danger Will Robinson!




Sorry, the position is filled. His name is Billy Graham, and his successor is franklin Graham.

Honestly I've never paid much attention to Beck. I've hardly ever listened to him at all... just not intrested. Based on little more than heresay and a few video clips, my impression is that he's a panic-monger and attention-whore... like most media personalities on both Left and Right.

If he wants to position himself as the leader o religious conservatives, he'd best be careful. That position is not hard to claim but very hard to maintain. If he isn't entirely sincere he will reveal himself before long and the fall will be a hard one.


Edited to add: no, him being Mormon won't help him at all, outside of Utah. Most Christian Conservatives are a little dubious about Mormonism.

Yes, there goes CNN. Don't they ever research anything? You can't believe anything they say. He's not a conservative either. What idiots.

Yeah the mormon thing kind of excludes him from such position.

That would be a crisis. Better the country be taken over by athiests with hate in their hearts and wearing communism on their sleeves.

Christians and Mormons are pure evil. We must guard against them at all costs.
OOOh Tactical you are a bigger fearmonger than Glenn beck.

God, you do love him don't you.

The fact that he's a Mormon makes it highly unlikely that the mainstream Conservative Christians will accept him. I've already posted one website that's out to get him for being Mormon.

I don't support it. I find Mormonism to be weird (honestly, all religion is a little weird to me - and I go to an Episcopal Church), but I don't care what people believe. It's their right. Just don't shove your way of worshiping God down my throat.

Your claims of "fearmongering" are pretty silly. He simply pointed out that Mormons and Christians don't always get along. Beck says **** like "the American Republic is over." Which is more sensationalized? C'mon.

When paraphrasing, at least try to come close to what the person said...

to some people, Romney being Mormon didn't help, but his main problem was that he wasn't enough of an authentic conservative to excite the base.

precisely. i don't dislike Romney because of the fact that his church says 'latter day saints' on it; i distrust him because it strikes me that he has no core political values other than 'what helps me right now'

The only thing besides him being a Mormon is that he installed socialist medicine in Mass when he was Governor. He's a pro-war chickenhawk, anti-civil liberties dirt bag like the rest of them.

Sure, you might think that if you didn't watch it. However, those that watched it know that the 240 priests, pastors, rabbis, imams behind Glenn and in the crowd are our religious leaders (The [new] Black Robe Regiment).

But you'll all keep misrepresenting it. :roll:

I am not a fan of Beck, but I really thought there was a lack of passion in the audience for this rally. I know its hard to be absolutely certain, but I thought there was a time when Beck was droning on and on when he tried to rev them up, but there seemed to be little response. I mean being the Tea Party is fun. Its full of dumping on the people in power and venting angry thoughts.

But Beck's long rambling speech did not seem to move people like complaining about liberals. What compounded all this was Beck speech really wasn't very good. It was all over the place between sacrifice for future generations, founding fathers, no need for someone to rule us, how God should rule us. No central point other than go to church the next day.

There was nothing in Beck's speech that was scary. But what I did hear was BORING! I think you saw it from the audience response that's I am not the only one who thought that.
